NEW YORK (AP) — New York City is drying out after being soaked by one of its wettest days in decades. City dwellers are now trying to dry out basements, while traffic resumed on highways, subways and airports that were temporarily shuttered by Friday’s severe rainfall. The heavy rainfall knocked out several subway and commuter rail lines, stranded drivers on highways, flooded basements and shuttered a terminal at LaGuardia Airport for hours. While the fierce storm has moved on, some of its damage lingered into the weekend. A power outage in a Brooklyn neighborhood caused by the storm prompted city officials on Saturday to evacuate staff and about 120 patients from a city hospital.
